Obvious pick. Saving cap space.

Per Kevin Pelton:

Clint Capela isn't your average sleeper.

Capela stands 6-foot-11 with a 7-4 1/2 wingspan and a leaping ability that makes him a regular presence around the rim at both ends of the floor. He seems engineered to be a scout's fancy, and yet, folks around the league are generally cool to the Swiss big man's game.

Still, while Capela is expected to be picked somewhere in the second half of the first round of tonight's NBA draft -- long after many fans will have turned off their TV sets -- his stellar production in France, playing for Elan Chalon at just 19 years old, is impossible to ignore.

My WARP projections have Capela as the No. 2 prospect in this year's field. Could he end up being the steal of the draft? I think so.

This kid's got potential...we keep him in Europe for a few years and he may turn out to be something good. Right now he's nowhere near NBA ready.

I have been high on this guy for months (along with Haofu). He is a raw version of Ibaka with better handles and poorer shot. He has tremendous defensive potential.

Doesn't his salary count against the cap, unless he stays in Europe for at least 2 years?

Hope he proves me wrong. He looks like a decent 2nd rounder to me.

I love it. If the Rockets traded the pick they wouldn't have gotten full value for him. Being able to take the fairly rated international prospect when you know you can't afford the capspace in such a great draft is perfect.

Also his rights will be much easier to trade than someone who'll play next year. Overall a perfect pick for what we need right now.
